Leila Christine Nadir and Cary Peppermint lead a workshop on their ecoarttech project

Working collaboratively as EcoArtTech since 2005, new media art duo Leila Nadir and Cary Peppermint study the environmental imagination–from nature and built spaces to the mobile landscape and electronic environments–in the afterglow of modernization. Merging their diverse skills and disciplinary training, Leila and Cary’s projects explore senses of place in industrialized, digitized, and urbanized culture, merging old with new: biological systems, primitive technologies, ancient meditation practices, nineteenth-century narratives about nature, theories of modernity, and new media technologies. Their projects have taken the form of architectural interventions and urban wilderness tours, net art and public performances, scholarly articles and poetic essays, earning awards from New York Foundation for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Franklin Furnace Fund, Joya: Arte y Ecología, and numerous university fellowships. EcoArtTech performances, exhibitions, and lectures have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Postmasters Gallery, 319 Scholes, Smackmellon Gallery, Exit Art, U.C.L.A., M.I.T. Media Lab, ISEA 2012, Banff New Media Institute, European Media Art Festival, Parsons The New School for Design, and the Neuberger Museum of Art, and their work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum, Walker Art Center, Rhizome.org, Turbulence.org of New Radio & Performing Arts, and Cornell University Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art. Recent interviews with Leila and Cary have been pushed in VisualMAG, New York Foundation for the Arts, and Furtherfield.org
